But, some retailers are bucking the trend.
Many have announced that they would be staying closed on Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving is November 23 this year. That means Black Friday is November 24. And some retailers are looking to keep those two days separate.
A trend has begun where some retailers will start their Black Friday sales on the night of Thanksgiving, and open in the evening and stay open all night. It started with Sears in 2010, moved to Walmart in 2011, and then Target in 2012.
Opening on Thanksgiving is controversial. Some states have enacted so-called "blue laws" which prohibit a store from opening on Thanksgiving, creating a rush at midnight. Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Maine have enacted such legislation.
Some retailers, however, are looking to buck that trend in a meaningful way.
Here are the retailers confirmed to be closed on Thanksgiving, according to data gathered by bestblackfriday.com:
Academy Sports + Outdoors
Babies R Us
BJ’s Wholesale Club
Blain’s Farm and Fleet
Burlington Coat Factory
Cost Plus World Market
Crate and Barrel
Half Price Books
Joann Fabric and Craft Stores
Jos. A. Bank
Mills Fleet Farm
Music & Arts
Office Depot and OfficeMax
P.C. Richard & Son
Pier 1 Imports
Raymour & Flanigan Furniture
Sears Hometown Stores
Sierra Trading Post
Sur La Table
The Container Store
The Original Mattress Factory
More retailers are expected to be on this list as they announce their opening hours for the holidays.
As more stores close for Thanksgiving, however, revenue gained on Thanksgiving Day continues to rise due to ecommerce sales. Adobe predicts it will rise 6.22% this year, outpacing brick and mortar's 5.38%.
